In this increasingly jaded era of cinematic history, the mere utterance of the phrase "video game adaptation" is sure to send waves of nausea and/or furious anger through the veins of even the most laid-back of horror fans. This, of course, is due in part to the questionable films directed by the legendary Uwe Boll, a man whose name has become synonymous with subpar big-screen versions of video games great and small.

Two new "Ju-On" sequels are set to hit Japan this year. The series, which spawned the US remake "The Grudge" and its sequel, is wildly popular in Japan and has inspired countless sequels and interations. These two new ones are titled "Ju-On: Shiroi Roujo" and "Ju-On: Kuroi Shoujo", and both are hitting theaters in Japan on June 27th. It's right around the 10th anniversary of Takashi Shimizu's original film, so I guess they figured why not celebrate with two more.

I enjoyed the trailer quite a bit, but is it me or does it look like these were both shot on video?

If you’ve seen the trailer for Sakichi Sato’s “Tokyo Zombie” you have a pretty good idea what kind of movie awaits you. Indeed, if you are an enthusiast of the Japanese sense of humor and their flare for melding gore, scat jokes and wildly over-cranked plotlines then you won’t be disappointed. What might surprise you is that rather than being built on a foundation of noisy spectacle, “Tokyo Zombie” is firmly rooted in two strong comedic performances.

Twitch got a look at the trailer for "Samurai Princess" today, the latest from the writer of "Tokyo Gore Police".

From Kengo Kaji the writer of Tokyo Gore Police, comes Samurai Princess! The story takes place sometime, somewhere in a world during the Samurai era, where people live together with highly developed mechanical dolls. However, excessively developed mechanical dolls start causing harm to the human society, leading to ghastly bloodshed happening all over the place.

Not only did we like "The Uninvited", but I'm starting to change my tune on remakes all together. Listen to find out why.

The crew discuss the new release "Shutter". You have to try hard to be this mediocre.

Lions Gates "The Eye" is a remake of the 2002 film from Hong Kong by The Pang Brothers, an international hit and favorite to many horror fans. Let me start off by saying that from what I can remember, this remake is fairly faithful to the source material. However, it has been years since I've seen the original, so this review will mainly be an objective take on this American version.
